NEW: Newport Back In Business After Hurricane Sandy

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

 

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, many shops, attractions and restaurant owners were busy taking down protective plywood, removing sandbags, restocking merchandise and setting up for business as usual in Newport Tuesday morning. 

Visitors Center + Mansions

The Newport Visitors Center at 23 America’s Cup Avenue is open; The Breakers, The Elms, Marble House, Rosecliff and Chateau-sur-Mer will open today at 12 p.m. and the International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum is open. Our four major convention hotels all have power and are welcoming guests, as are many inns and bed and breakfasts throughout Newport and Bristol County.

Bridges

The Newport Pell Bridge, Sakonnet Bridge and Mount Hope Bridge are all open. TF Green Airport in Warwick reports a number of flights have been impacted with delays or cancellations. Please check with your airline for the most up to date flight information. Normal operations at the airport are expected to resume on Wednesday, October 31. Though most Amtrak service in the Northeast remains suspended on Tuesday, an announcement of limited service restoration along the Northeast Corridor will be made this afternoon.  All RIPTA bus lines are to expect minor delays as hurricane cleanup continues.

Discover Newport has put out a special thanks to "our police and fire departments, and all first responders who have kept visitors and residents alike safe on land, air and sea. Our thoughts and best wishes are with those who are struggling in the aftermath and the communities hit hardest."

For updates, go to Discover Newport's Facebook page and Twitter feed throughout the day.
